Yes. And I wished he had dropped the GD and concentrated on JGB/Grisman type stuff because I think he might still be here if he had. HOwever, even JGB was getting too big - he went from rooms like the Stone to Hampton Coliseum like what seemed overnight (a true overnite sensation -dynamo).

Grisman maybe, but Kahn was his smack buddy. I love his bass playing, but generally speaking, I don't think touring with JK was a good thing for Jerry's health.

probably true re kahn, but a junkie will score no matter what. and for jerry, i'm sure there were plenty of people coming around to offer some so they could hang with him.
